Star Wars: Predators
“This is Senator Mon Mothma, I have been called a traitor for speaking out against a corrupt Galactic Senate. A Senate manipulated by the sinister tactics of the Emperor. For too long I have watched the heavy hand of the Empire strangle our liberties, stifling our freedoms in the name of ensuring our safety. No longer! Despite Imperial threats, despite the Emperor himself, I have no fear as I take new action. For I am not alone. Beginning today we stand together as allies. I hereby resign from the Senate to fight for you, not from the distant hall of politics but from the front lines. We will not rest until we bring an end to the Empire, until we restore our Republic! Are you with me?”

Mon Mothma is a founding member of the Alliance to Restore the Republic, and it’s first Chief of State. She is the most influential voice in the Rebel Alliance, having complete control over the political wing of the Alliance.
She first met Predator Squadron in the aftermath of the Battle of Mimban. She briefed them on the intelligence they recovered during that battle – specifically relating to the Empire’s Death Star II project. Together they determined that the best course of action going forward would be to disavow Predator Squadron in order to give them a reasonable cover to attempt to infiltrate Gand’s brother’s shipping company that is providing aid to the Death Star Project. Although Mon Mothma recognised that it was a drastic measure, she believed that the threat the second Death Star presented to the Alliance was grave enough to warrant the measure.
